Their boat sank on Manhattan’s West Side on Tuesday, killing two relatives one from Florida and the other from Colombia and wounding eleven others. Julian Vasquez, age 7, of Florida, and Lindelia Vasquez, age 47, of Colombia, were the victims that perished. They were two of a group of family members who boarded the jet boat Stimulus Money in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for a trip on the Hudson River. The 7-year-old victim and others were seen in video from a restaurant in Elizabeth, New Jersey, picking up food on Tuesday for the reunion, which was planned by Lindelia Vasquez. The 24-year-old licensed boat skipper from Elizabeth, who was one of ten further family members injured; their ages ranged from 19 to 53; and they were all either from Florida or Colombia. While the remaining passengers are thought to have non-life threatening injuries, he continues to be in serious condition.
Mayor Eric Adams remarked, “This is a devastating moment for them and those who are part of the families that were there,” “As New Yorkers our heart goes out.” Investigators believe the 27-foot Yamaha boat got tangled in the wake of a passing boat when it overturned close to the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum. The owner of the boat was riding a jet ski behind it. Time-lapse footage obtained by Eyewitness News shows the boat navigating the river close to the Intrepid. Everything seemed normal, but then the boat abruptly turned over, releasing a fountain of water. At after 2:45 p.m., marine and ground units from the FDNY responded to the Hudson River near West 46th Street and Pier 84 in Midtown Manhattan. According to authorities, the boy and woman perished after being trapped beneath the boat. Firefighter Ryan Warnock stated, “Obviously anytime it’s a child, it changes maybe your emotional state, but you just do what you have to do,” “For this, you prepare.
It is our purpose in being here.” When Warnock discovered the 7-year-old youngster, rescue personnel made every effort to save him. But by the time he arrived at the hospital, it was too late for both him and the trapped woman. Authorities claim that if nearby ships hadn’t hurried to the area to assist police and fire department rescues in pulling people from the water, the situation may have turned out far worse. Two of the company’s ferries responded, according to a statement from the New York Waterway Ferry operator. Nine passengers on the boat were saved by its crew. An employee of the New York Waterway Ferry remarked, “We kicked in and did what we had to do,” We pulled the passengers out after flipping the boat and the nearby cradle over. We then put on our life jackets. An observer noticed what happened on one of the ferries. Rabbi Yochanan Marsow recalled, “We went on the boat ferry and we observed a boat capsize.
“Everyone on board was yelling, so the ferry came to a stop, and life jackets were distributed. Then, one by one, we lifted them up.” Some of the same crew members who saved passengers from U.S. Airways Flight 1549, often referred to as the Miracle on the Hudson, which made an emergency landing in the Hudson River more than ten years ago, were on board the ferry. On Monday evening, divers removed the watercraft from the Hudson River. The number of passengers and their total weight are being examined by investigators, but they maintain that it is still too early to determine what went wrong. NYPD Harbor inspector Anthony Russo remarked, “We had the current, the wind, so you could have wakes approaching from different directions, waves from different directions,” “The Hudson River’s always a dangerous place to operate.”
